    Ask for strong coffee if you prefer one. Decent Brunch menu

    As far as Upper East side diners go, this is among the best. Dinners options are good and if you tell them how to make your omelet - they do it. It's a diner, but it's become my go to UES breakfast.

    Nice and cozy. Great for meeting friends before or after a night out. Even good for large groups.

    Best diner in the UES. Good portions for a good price- and the food is never greasy. However, I suggest ordering online instead of calling in to ensure a correct order on take out.

    Three eggs for breakfast is a great deal for your money! 😃

    Worse place ever! They brought me twice the wrong order and the waiter was beyond rude. Never again.

    Lately my favorite is California chipotle burger. It's spicy California burger with guacamole.

    Open all night! Take your friends here after surveying the mediocre bars in the area.

    Bill Cauchois · September 13, 2013

    Open 24/7 and it's actually good. Best blueberry smoothies!

    Used to be my go-to diner for weekend eggs and coffee, but I can't say I have plans of going back after continuously finding hair in my food during recent visits...the place has gotten really dirty!

  • Steve M.

    Great French Toast.

    Steve Maybo · April 14, 2013

    Get the Santa Fe salad with BBQ chicken. Or Greek Salad if you're veggie. Everything here is awesome and fresh and the staff are the friendliest in NYC.

    HeyHayleyJane · March 19, 2013

    If you like soup you have to get the avagavalamono soup!

    Good food the three egg special is ok but the three eggs is a bit much.

    Mary Woods · November 29, 2012

    Awful staff, rude! Keep going and try Gracie Mews Diner instead! It's worth walking a couple more blocks.

    Hectic Sunday brunch: waiting for a table, 27 kids screaming & waiters running into me ended up with a pretty good, affordable meal. Just avoid busy times & calm expectations (2 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    Falafel rolls are cheap but delicious.

    Steve m is stupid, this place is great and I only go to this diner in all of new York city!

    David Barragan · April 1, 2012
  • Allison G.

    The food is great! But be sure to tell your server you want to split your tab! Legit got into an argument because my server wouldn't take two cards for one bill.

    Allison Garrity · March 23, 2012
  • Tanya S.

    The berry berry waffle at brunch is loaded with berries.

    They have grits here!

    L M. · June 18, 2011
  • Steve M.

    If you want good service, like more coffee or waiting less than 10 minutes for the waiter to first arrive, this is not the place for you.

    Steve Maybo · April 3, 2011
  • Cassandra D.

    Awesome place to get food after a weeknight of drinking.

    Cassandra D · March 1, 2011
  • Brooks W.

    Brunch menu is pretty dope. $11-14 for a big breakfast, coffee or juice, bloody Mary or mimosa, and dessert... Try shaking a stick at that.

    Brooks Wood · October 10, 2010
  • Vanessa W.

    Everything here is fantastic! I have Celiac disease and don't get sick when I order here!

    Vanessa Wanderlingh · April 25, 2010

    Best weekday breakfast special in the city! Less than $10 for a full breakfast w/coffee+juice.

    Jonathon Rosenthal · March 19, 2010
